- That the finish in port barrels is not dominant is the strength of this bottling. To a good Bourbonreifung join the spicier notes of the port added, without obscuring the Erstreifung by acid. This is how finishing makes sense.
The Portfass is very discreet in the nose. The prevailing notes are more peach, granny smith, candy canes and hay.
The onset is pleasantly creamy and very gentle for the alcohol content. Orange biscuits meet caramel, ginger and cloves.
The finish is reasonably long, the spices remain and oak flavoring is added.
- added water brings tobacco candy floss sweetness like jam, with a lovely aftertaste .
Sweet, like corn candies indeed, orange jelly, hints of chocolate in package, also coconut and hazelnut shells.
Sweet juicy and fruity at the front, pineapple cake, brown sugar, warming ginger and spiced oak.
For me middle long, complex but very nice.
- The port finish brings less sweetness and fruit but rather shortbread and light spices. Convinced the most in the taste.

- SMWS Tasting Notes
Colour: Yellow gold
Flavour profile: Spicy & dry
Twelve years in bourbon, then finished in a second fill port
barrique. The nose is sweet (tablet, corn candies, orange jelly, Edinburgh
Rock), but also slightly metallic (chocolate coins in foil, tin of Anton Berg
chocolate plum marzipans); then toasted coconut and hazelnut shells. The palate
is sweet, juicy and fruity at the front (Jaffa cakes, upside-down pineapple
cake, brown sugar on cooked pear) but with a back-burner of warming ginger,
clove and spiced oak. Water brings moist tobacco and candy floss to the nose
and the palate is now juicy as jam, the gentle tannic spice receding to the
Drinking Tip: A pleasantly warming dram for a cold evening or after a bracing walk.
